From today the Covid certification scheme includes provision for a negative test for Covid-19, as an alternative to proof of vaccination.
LFD test kit instructions include details of how to register a test result on the online results portal or by phone. Once the test result is registered (and the individual consents to receive a confirmation message), an email and text are issued to confirm the result. People can show that text or email message to gain entry to settings where certification is needed.
The Scottish Government is also working with local partners including Local Authorities and transport partners to further expand the availability of free lateral flow tests and identify further sites for them to be picked up, including shopping centres, supermarkets, garden centres, sports grounds, Christmas markets and transport hubs.
